Homecoming: College of Engineering Open House
Current students will be displaying their research and projects via a Poster Session and student organizations will have displays as well.
Researchers from the UT Arlington Research Institute will be here to demonstrate their robots, 3-D printing capabilities and much more.
Several of our engineering labs will be open for tours:
Laboratory of Regenerative Neurobiology (Engineering Research Building, Room 276)
Dr. Mario Romero-Ortega
This lab concentrates on the long-term goal of uncovering the molecular basis of neurite growth, axon guidance and target recognition, both during development and after injury. Specific projects in his lab are focused in three areas 1) spinal cord injury monitoring and neuroprotection, 2) peripheral nerve gap injury repair, and 3) regenerative peripheral neurointerfaces.
Soil Mechanics Laboratory (Nedderman Hall, Rooms B19/B20)
Dr. Anand Puppala
Laboratory characterization on subsoils to study their swell and strength properties. These properties are used for civil infrastructure design.
Computer Science & Engineering
Heracleia Lab (Engineering Research Building, Room 313)
Dr. Fillia Makedon
The Heracleia Lab is a research laboratory specializing in medical imaging, bioinformatics, sensor networks, and collaboration systems.
NEXT GEN Systems Group Laboratory (Nedderman Hall, Room 250)
Dr. Dan Popa
The NGS Group conducts research on the Next Generation Microsystems and Robots that are increasingly small, cheap, integrated, and networked.
Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering
RFID Lab (Woolf Hall, Room 413)
AutoID Lab (Engineering Lab Building, Room 309)
Dr. Erick Jones
The Radio Frequency and Auto-Identification (RAID) Labs, which boasts 20 students, 50% of which are undergraduate students, provides new age research which automates invisible barcodes for modern world usage such as smart boxes that tell truck drivers that they are lost to smart pill bottles that can tell elderly populations when their last pill was taken, are just some of the innovations that are accomplished in this research lab.
Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Formula SAE Workshop/Lab (Woolf Hall, Room 121)
Dr. Bob Woods
UT Arlington College of Engineering's Formula SAE team is in its 32nd year and has won eight national and three international titles. Formula SAE is a worldwide engineering competition sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers.
Materials Science and Engineering
Characterization Center for Materials and Biology (Engineering Lab Building, Room 104A)
Dr. Efstathios (Stathis) Meletis
This lab uses a variety of state-of-the-art equipment that allows researchers to study and characterize the microstructure and structure of materials.
